The section includes:

* A short video of why the formula is important
* A quick primer on the formula and accountability requirements: 10 frequently asked questions

*A tool that allows you to compare how much different school districts will get

The state law creating the new funding system shifts decision making on K-12 spending from the Legislature to local districts. It requires that school boards reach out and listen to parents, teachers and community members before setting priorities.
 

We welcome your comments and suggestions on the section. Send them to edsource@edsource@org."

Courageous Conversations About Race - Dr. Glenn Singleton | SV/SJ 2020 Symposium

Courageous Conversations About Race - Dr. Glenn Singleton | SV/SJ 2020 Symposium | Education Tomorrow | Scoop.it

March 13, 2014 and
May 20, 2014
Dr. Glenn Singleton
Courageous Conversations about Race

"Educators are acutely aware of the statistical gaps in achievement between different racial groups. Considering the rapidly changing racial composition of student populations, how can educators reach a level of cultural proficiency necessary to eliminate this disparity. Examining the achievement gap through the prism of race, Dr. Glenn Singleton explains the need for candid, courageous conversations about race so that educators may understand why performance inequity persists, and learn how they can develop a curriculum that promotes true academic parity. Only when educators have established both a language and a process for addressing the intersection of race and achievement will they be able to restructure their schools in ways which improve student performance and fulfill the promise that every child has the right to learn regardless of their race, culture or class."
